About the book

Drafted by american Jesuit Father John LaFarge and buried in the Vatican’s archives since 1938, this engrossing narrative sheds new light on the Church’s failure in the 1930s to alert the world to the nature of fascism and its inherent racism and anti-Semitism. Introduction by Garry Wills. Translated by Stephen Rendall.
